Summary: Thermage® is a revolutionary skin treatment that’s gaining popularity among men and women who want to restore a fresh, youthful firmness to their skin without invasive surgical procedures. Thermage® offers numerous benefits compared to facelifts and other traditional cosmetic surgery, but here’s a look at the top five advantages.
1. Tightens Skin
Patients who want a non-surgical option for tightening and firming the skin love Thermage®, which can be used on any part of the body, including the face. Many patients are reluctant to pursue surgery due to concerns over potentially ending up with a too tight or overdone look that looks obviously surgical. Thermage® restores a natural-looking youthfulness to the treated area while minimizing the appearance of lines and wrinkles, even around the eyes.
Its ability to tighten skin also makes Thermage® a popular procedure among moms, who are often frustrated with loose, stretched-out belly skin after pregnancy. After just one treatment session with Thermage®, many moms report a tighter, firmer tummy that’s reminiscent of how their figure looked before pregnancy. Busy moms also appreciate that they can schedule Thermage® without having to squeeze any recovery period or downtime into their already busy schedules.
2. Boosts Collagen Production
Thermage® is able to rejuvenate aging skin because the radiofrequency technology dramatically affects the levels of collagen in the deeper tissue layers. Collagen is the underlying, supportive element that provides the smooth, fresh look of young skin. Collagen levels naturally decrease as we age, contributing to wrinkles, sagging and loss of firmness.
During your Thermage® treatment session, your doctor will use a handheld device that delivers radiofrequency waves just below the skin’s surface. This gentle heating process bolsters existing collagen and also promotes the production of new collagen. By strengthening and repopulating collagen, Thermage® creates a dramatically younger-looking appearance with long-term results.
3. Minimizes Wrinkles
Due to the boost in collagen production, Thermage® also impressively reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in the treatment area. As collagen levels increase, the appearance of lines and wrinkles on the top layers of skin are diminished by plumping and strengthening the supportive tissue below. This powerful yet noninvasive approach to fighting back against the inevitable effects of aging makes Thermage® very popular among patients wanting to subtly—yet effectively—turn back the hands of time and regain a more vibrant, youthful look.
4. Doesn’t Require Incisions or Leave Scars
For decades, any patient plagued by sagging skin or a loss of elasticity only had surgery as an option for restorative tightening and firming. Unfortunately, every surgery—even a cosmetic procedure—requires incisions that inevitably leave behind scars, no matter how unobtrusively placed.
Concern over final results on top of the possible risks and complications that go along with any surgery has kept many patients from taking the next step. Thermage® offers new hope to these men and women: an effective treatment option to address loose, wrinkly skin without incisions or scars, and that doesn’t require the use of anesthesia.
5. Zero Downtime
From a patient’s perspective, the actual treatment experience during Thermage® is a relatively pleasant one, especially when compared to traditional cosmetic surgery. Not only is Thermage® a completely pain-free procedure, it requires absolutely no downtime after your treatment session. In fact, many patients schedule their appointment right over their lunch break and return to their daily routine immediately after leaving their doctor’s office. Thermage® truly is a no-hassle way to improve the appearance of your skin.
